I never forgot that, back when I was in college, a wonderful literature teacher, Dr. Holt, noted that I did not take initiative. It was true then, and it's still true enough today.
Heavenletters™ came to be published because God above gave me a big shove. I mostly do not initiate thoughts, but I'm quick to bounce off someone else's thoughts. Someone says something that feels right to me or doesn't feel right to me, and I have an immediate response, pro or con.
Someone I know recently wrote: "The most important thing is the Word of God."
My immediate reaction was: "No, God Himself is more important than what He says."
My feeling is that if I had to choose between God and His words --and, of course nobody does have to make this choice -- I would choose God, this relationship with God that feels so close and so good. I must have this live engagement with God that is now consciously the mainstay of my life.
Yet what are Godwriting™ workshops but coming closer to the God within?
Then I remembered: "And the Word was God."
So what is the argument? The Godwriting component of my relationship with God is so integral and vital, God Who loves and gives His love through words. It is not possible to separate God from His Words even as we know He is beyond words. For most of my life, I didn't have a knowing acquaintance with God. Now I know God is my Friend, Advisor, Counselor. He is alive and well. I thank God.
Deep in silence, the God of Love speaks through His Words. His love is greater than His Words, and yet He uses words. Just now, it occurs to me that God's Words are sort of like sub-titles in movies. They underscore what already is, and that is His Love. And God underscores that all of us are the same love as He is.
Are words intellectual? Maybe, yet they are also vibrations.
Am I, who does not like analyzing, trying to analyze God? Am I going through mental gymnastics? I'm much better at feeling than thinking. Way back when Godwriting started, I remember I said to someone that I know God as a feeling, and the person I was talking to shook her head no, that was not right. Maybe not right for her but right for me. God continues to be the heart of my life.
God says that We are One, that Oneness is, and Oneness alone is. God is contained in what He says, so what can be separated?
P.S. I almost forgot to say! The Heavenletter written down yesterday began this way:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God. Each sound contains its own vibration. What distance is there between sound and meaning? Does the sound of a word come first, or does the meaning come first, or do they come simultaneously? Can there be meaning without vibration? Even thoughts have vibration. Even light has a vibration.
We can say that life began with a jiggling of a vibration. We can say that life began with a twang.
